College’s Rosner Selected for ICI Leadership Academy Cohort
Campus News

Andrew Rosner, director of digital fluency at Franklin College, has been chosen as a member of the fourth cohort of the Independent Colleges of Indiana (ICI) Leadership Academy. The year-long program specializes in the talent development needs of faculty and staff members of private college campuses. Each participant was identified by their sponsoring college as someone whose leadership will be critical to the institution’s future.

“Andrew has effectively led our digital fluency initiative since its inception. His success is due in large part to his ability to simultaneously understand higher education and the larger marketplace in which it operates, while also balancing the complementary tasks of visioning and implementing,” said Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the College, Kristin C. Flora, Ph.D.

Throughout the program, these aspiring leaders will gain an understanding of their institution holistically, and within the state and federal higher education landscape. Academy graduates are trained to view their college through multiple lenses, (academic, financial, community involvement, and others) and to develop the leadership competencies needed for their institutions and their own professional success.

“As we launch the fourth Leadership Academy cohort, we’re not just expanding a program; we’re sculpting a transformative force at our member institutions,” says Dottie L. King, president and CEO of ICI. “This initiative isn’t just about education; it’s a catalyst for the evolution of leadership, fostering individuals who will propel our private colleges to new heights.”

Rosner joined Franklin College in February 2021. Previously, he worked at the Mark Cuban Center for Sports Media and Technology at Indiana University where he began as director in 2015. Rosner is also the former owner of Everlong Digital, a firm that specialized in developing digital marketing strategies for small businesses. Rosner holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in kinesiology from DePauw University and a Master of Science degree in sports marketing and management from Indiana University. He is a resident of Bargersville
